jon scott. thanks for watching. we'll see you again tomorrow. ♪ pete: look at that sky. don't keep the camera on us. sing in. jedediah bila, will cain. can you name. colors of the sky? will: purple, orange, pink. i can name all kind of colors. here is what i want to say about that picture. sunsets are universally appreciated. sunrises do not get enough credit. that, my friend, beautiful.
3:01 am
jedediah: that is true. i felt like you couldn't see a good sunrise or sunset in places like new york. i always had to go to florida for that. doing on this show we show a lot of cool scenes that happen real early in the morning. you have to be grateful. a great start. great to see both of you today. i hope you guys have your seatbelts fastened. this is going to be a wild week. the rnc kicking off tomorrow. president trump is traveling to charlotte as previews a positive message. there was lot of talk about the dnc being a little gloomy, being depressing. they were trying to tap into a sentiment of empathy. but lots of themes were missing. what is the rnc going to look like? let's take a sneak-peek. the theme is honoring the great american story. tomorrow, land of heroes, tuesday land of promise, wednesday, land of opportunity and thursday, land of greatness. the expectation there will be
3:02 am
some tribute paid to the values that built this country. they will acknowledge some turmoil going on, some of the rioting going on. some of the pain people felt with covid-19 and also present the positive message what we can do moving forward. some sort of uplifting message that can get people better tan where they are today. pete: the president will travel to locations. you will see him on locations to multiple times. contrasting biden who never went to milwaukee. a couple of the producers of "the apprentice are part of this production maybe a little added tv value. here is word you might hear you didn't hear last week. borders, sovereignty, capitalism, communist china, censorship, law and order, god, the right to bear arms. you might hear about 1776, not 1619. you will see a massive contrast,
3:03 am
will the way america, the promise, heroes are honored and celebrated this week versus darkness and light last week. will: right or left, republican or democrat, i think one of the great lessons of president trump's win in 2016, people are attracted to optimism. people are attracted to strength. they're attracted to winners. i would imagine, i would hope, jed, as you point out, this week is reaffirmmation of who america is, our values, our founding values. they reflect that optimism. that equality. that strength. i would hope. i would expect the republican national convention will live up to those kind of standards. president trump by the way i believe expects this same kind of thing this is what he had to say on "the next revolution." >> you just had the democrat convention. you're up next week. a lot of the commentary on the democrat convention it was very negative. president trump: right. it was dark. >> attacking trump, donald trump trump.
3:04 am
president trump: trump i agree. >> what will we see? president trump: something that is uplifting and positive as we would like it to be. you have to defend yourself talking about the some of the lies, social security, i don't think he knows too much about social security. will: catch more of that interview on "the next revolution" later today on fox news. turning to a fox news alert, breaking overnight, anti-police riots, clashing with officers in denver. riders smashing windows, setting fires in the streets, throwing rocks at and fireworks at officers outside of police headquarters. [shouting] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] will: they tried tearing down a fence at the state capitol building. nine people are arrested. one officer was hurt. similar scene in portland as protesters torched an american flag, throwing rocks and bottles at police officers. the portland truck driver
3:05 am
attacked by an angry mob, slamming rioters on fox news. >> i thought they were trying to fight was this kind of behavior towards them but they're exhibiting the same behavior that they're trying to stop. will: police arrested the suspect in adam haner's attack. he is charged with assault and rioting, pete. pete: one of those earlier videos showed a quizno's window. this is not any rationality or usefulness, whatsoever. sheer criminality on the streets of america. there is your quizno's, maybe he didn't like his six-inch sub. ultimately goes on night after night after night. one target, the american flag being burned. the target of protesters are police themselves, the police precinct, government buildings. this is an antigovernment movement from the, from the
3:06 am
left, not condemned by the left. and jed, we had a whole convention last week. people are seeing these images. it is not just portland. it is not just denver. it wasn't just minneapolis. they have a problem in the subways here in new york because the every window is being destroyed. i don't know how the voters go to the ballot box recognizing one party isn't even talking about it. jedediah: protesters in denver, much like protesters, rioters, let's be honest what they are doing. they are upset. police are not defunded. in denver a bill was vetoed. they were upset, a bill calling for a peace force to replace the police. what does that even mean, a police force? do these people live in some sort of bizarre utopia where criminals will abide by a peace force that arrives at your door when someone is about to break in or commit a heinous crime
3:07 am
against you or your family? it is bizarre. people around the country are concerned about extremist measures. no one wants violence to overtake their city, no one sane. no one wants businesses destroyed or flee for the safety, protection of themselves. who is running the cities? who are the mayors? what parties are affiliated with them. make a decision not only what they want in the national election. we talk about the national election over time. but local elections will come into play very seriously here. you elect people that need to be govern in times of turmoil and distress like we're seeing right now. one person who weighed in on that is rudy giuliani. who we all know took new york city was a very bad place when it came to crime, to a very good one. weighed in on biden. weighed in on the democrats ignoring violence at the dnc and more on on "justice."
3:08 am
>> if you look at seattle washington, portland, oregon, seattle, washington, if you vote for biden, that will be you, i don't care if you're a city or suburb. the tendency about crime, you don't control it, you enable it, it goes out of control. 98 days of continuous rioting in portland. they are paying no attention. seattle, paying no attention. 20 murder as weekend in chicago. talking about all democrat cities now, he paid no attention. this big party came to a big convention, they are cities are going up in flames and they ignore it. will: you know, jed, pete, i think it's a very worthy conversation to have about what is the electoral effect? what will happen in the election when it comes to these riots? how will it affect who we vote for president. that is not the question i have today. very worthy question i have,
3:09 am
what is the end goal of these riots, what do they hope to accomplish at the end of violence. just a viewers, going on 87 days i have this morning, when does it end? how does it end? it cannot go on like this. as giuliani talked about we're approaching 90 days. it has to end. pete: does it end on election day? does it end when their guy wins? does it end when the election system meets their grievances when they think america is bad country. leftist, violence, instability is useful to them because they think they can fill that vacuum. we'll see jed, if we answer the question where it ends. jedediah: it ends when it becomes so bad those mayors are forced to do something. i don't know what that means though. you see cities going up in flames. i don't know what their limit actually is. it is pretty distressing they
3:10 am
haven't done something already. there is backlash against federal involvement. this should be addressed by local officials. if they don't do the job what do you do with federal buildings being destroyed. this is time starting to resemble a bad movie you're starting to be in. will: i hope we don't have a national tragedy, it doesn't have to be so bad it is undeniable. pete: you wonder where you get a to david dinkins moment when citizens say i want quality of life panned basic law and order? we shall see. we have few additional'd hundreds line you had looking this one. the house passed a meaningless bill to send $25 billion to the u.s. postal office. they banned operational changes that slowed down actions that. the bill is not expected to pass the senate and the white house

3:18 am
what is impact on your business for the shutdowns? i don't know if you have outdoor seating and can accommodate that. fill us in when that is means financially and otherwise. >> when we were shut down, we were doing deliveries and pickup. that is hard thing to adjust your restaurant to do that we were not that type of restaurant first of all like many of us. we were working 20% of our usual revenue would have been. i've been lucky. we've been lucky. we're in staten island, we have more outdoor space than most, manhattan got hit a lot harder because of all those issues. i have outdoors. it is doing okay. obviously you know, compared to what we had, happy that cuomo and de blasio have given us that. we're working i say 60, to 70% at best. some more, some less. but that is where we're at.
3:19 am
but the scary part is when, de blasio saying, not opening up until there was a vaccine. nobody knows there is going to be a vaccine. there is speculation. end of the year, beginning of the year, what have you, cuomo saying there is no plan and we're going to reshut you down coming the fall. they shut us down coming in the fall. jedediah: that is the fear, right? that is the fear, that you are going to have openings, closings, openings, closings, which is hard to sustain in the restaurant. the weather will change t will get colder. these outdoor capacities will change with it. i want to ask you about the lawsuit. you are deciding right now whether to take part in this lawsuit. tell us about your feelings on that? >> look, i am just part of like you said the lawsuit. a bunch of us got together over the course of time. there is a lot of unity within the restaurant owners to share
3:20 am
information and so forth. obviously that came out once we heard, the administration, de blasio, cuomo stating what they said, they're not thinking of reopening us. they might shut us down again. it will devastate us. we will not survive the year for sure, if that happens, very few of us will survive that. we barely survived march, april, may, now we're surviving the outdoor. the only resort, would get all together, band as many restaurants as possible, now we're 100, trying to build up more and put together some kind of a lawsuit. look, we don't want to go that route obviously. jedediah: yeah. i don't want to cut you off. this is a great segment. we're just running out of time but i want to urge everyone check out the richmond restaurants in staten island is great. this staten island italian can vouch for the food. we want to wish you best of

god problem democrats for years. in 2012 they tried to remove god from the platform. they worked to remove god from public oaths of office. you saw this last week. all week, pete, they struggled to talk about faith in god for a reason. i mean they want to win some of the faith voters but they don't want to offend their secular audience. they talk about faith in some general, undefined way. oh, his faith is so important to him. oh, his faith helped him in troubled times but they never say faith in what. are they talking about faith in themselves? faith in other people? faith in the easter bunny? they don't want to talk about faith in god. when they do, it highlights how in opposition they are in their embrace of the barbaric practice of unrestricted abortion. how opposed that is to the god of the bible, the teaching of scripture and even the catholic church of which joe biden is apart of. so they won't talk about faith in god.

fox. good to have you. will: tou so much. >> really, i'm glad you hit it because there has been two narratives here. i've been at the forefront of this fake russia narrative and whole impeachment sham we've been dealing with for a long time. the real issues at the department of justice. there is correlation here. the democrats are coming up discussing this. the postmaster general did what i think is right. unfortunately i say this many times, perception is reality to people. perception generated by the democrats there was this massive collusion among the postmaster and general to throw the election. the reality is, during the virus you have folks, mail system is working but you also have the normal outside cycles with people not being in work and post office doing the best it can. they're doing a good job of getting delivered to the people that need it that is the concern as we're coming into this. there is nothing being taken off-line. go deeper here. they're talking about taking sorting machines off-line. taking mailboxes and moving

4:06 am
resilience and the part about optimism and the part how america is a country that has gone through tough times and we come out on top. they left all of that out. they left people feeling sad and down. what you want for people to feel that you understand their plight. that you understand what they're going through. but also help them get to a better place. that is a void that the rnc can come in and hopefully fill. one of the things i think they should really stress are what has happened to so many businesses around the country. you have so many small business owners have been impacted by the shutdowns. new york businesses in particular are so fed up they're now coming forth, a lot of brooklyn and staten island restaurants saying we're going to sue. we'll get this class-action lawsuit together because bill de blasio doesn't have a plan when indoor dining can be brought back to play. without indoor dining, new seasons coming, winter comes, we'll not be able to survive on outdoor dining a the love protests around city hall in new york city, protesting the

message of destruction. i mean shutting down business. destroying the economy. destroying the police force. they have a lot of criticism for president trump. look, president trump is not immune from criticism but you will have to tell the american people how you will create. destruction is easy. creation is hard. creation is optimism lies. that is what the republican national convention should focus on. pete: guys, let's get together. i've been thinking a lot about this we've gone through a lot. i know your business is struggling. ready. i don't have a plan. no plan. i got no plan for you. all of you out there. we shoved your restaurants out on the sidewalks. i hope you enjoy that. you have plywood around you. you have a few tables. everyone is fake social distancing. wenter is coming as you mentioned, jed. new hampshire said we're open 100% inside. new hampshire, southern new hampshire which means boston. some states are looking at winter, common sense has got to arrive some day. we have to respect people enough to make their own choice to come into a restaurant if they want

great land we call heem in the united states of america. to achieve the rank of lieutenant colonel and command battalion combat and former member of united states house of representatives. to represent the great state of texas as chairman of their republican party that is what america is about. it is not about what we saw last week with the democrats. it is about the hopes and dreams we achieve within our own will and determination. will: it is pretty obvious that the message of pessimism came through last week and i think it is because it came in the form of largely of criticism of president trump. the democrats clearly made a bet, they don't need a positive platform. they need to focus on president trump and criticism. do you think that will be enough? do you think that will animate voters? whatever we do, we're just voting against president trump? >> no, i don't think it will, will. one of the things i've always tried to council candidates about, you have to tell people what you're for, not what
4:38 am
against. you ever level, 35, 40, 45% of people will come out to say they hate president trump. i think more people will come out and say we love our country more so. i think with the constitutional conservative principles of the republican party and our platform, when we focus on our judeo-christian faith heritage that made us strong, the reason why we were able to stand up to the greatest power the world knew at the time, great britain and establish this nation, our strong belief in individual sovereignty, free market on the onal spirit, our belief in quality education that unlocks any doors and our service to the nation, those are the bed rook principles that we've seen this president elevate and i think that will carry him to victory in november. pete: colonel, you mentioned judeo-christian values. you've been a long ardent defender and supporter of state of israel and the jewish people. under the president there have been huge breakthroughs, scrapping the iran deal a existential threat, moving the
4:39 am
capital to jerusalem and deal about the golan heights. jared kushner and mike pompeo are heading middle east for more peace talks. do you expect momentum? you're in touch with what is happening there? >> pete, you and i have been over in the middle east. we understand strength and might are respect respected in that part of the world. the united states is leading and strong. we're not leading from behind. they are operating from a high ground. that is what people are expecting. so many in the middle east were really confused by the obama administration, the obama-biden administration and their outreach to iran and coddling of iran and sending millions of dollars to iran. we don't have to pick up headlines right now and hear about terrorist attacks or isis or beheadings or things of that nature because we went on the offense. we stood strong. everyone in the middle east knows our yes is a yes and our no is a no.
4:40 am
jedediah: lieutenant colonel allen west. thank you so much for joining us this morning on this great sunday morning as we look forward to the rnc we'll talk again soon. thanks so much. >> thank you. jedediah: we're going to turn now to some headlines for you in this hour. a man is arrested after a jogger is found dead in arkansas. sydney sutter land's body was discovered near her home, days after she went missing while on a run. a farmer is reportedly in police custody on suspicion of capital murder. two girls are being held as heroes for saving a one-year-old's life. mckenzie and olivia tomkins of iowa performing cpr while someone else called for help. when first-responders arrived the child was breathing on its own. the police honoring the girls, treating them to pizza and ice cream. not a bad deal. police say the child is doing just fine luckily. the show will go on in new york city for the holidays. the macy's thanksgiving day parade and rockefeller center

4:42 am
not a lot of time. officially forecast to be category 1 storm. making landfall around plaquemines's parish sometime tomorrow morning. laura is right now over hispaniola. a lot of mountains in the dominican republic and haiti. that inhibits any strengthening. it is holding pretty well. it moves across cuba. a lot of land mass to get over. then it gets back over the gulf of mexico waters, really warm. those waters, sometimes if one storm moves in an area, pulls up cooler water, the storms will not be in the same area. at least the direction they're coming. so it will not have any problems. officially forecast to be a category 2 storm, two days later. right now in louisiana, if you're in eastern texas, watch this as well. guys? pete: crazy. rick, thank you very much. coming up another night of chaos in portland as an american flag is torched, a true representation what they believe. police are pelted with rocks and

4:47 am
portland for the local leadership, to step up, do their job and let the law enforcement officers in that area to do what they know needs to be done to stop this lawlessness. we've seen almost 90 days complete ineptness of local leadership to do what they need to do, let the law enforcement officers do what needs to be done to end this. it's outrageous. will: mark are they doing battle with effectively the same people every night? are they arrested and released? how do you end it when the same people that are doing it continue to do it? are they abdicating powers of arrest otherwise they should have? are these policies mayors are ignoring? what are they not doing? >> all of that, pete, spot on. right now the district attorney locally is only going to go ahead and prosecute those for serious crimes committed there. it is outrageous. someone can go there, actually resist a police officer and not
4:48 am
be prosecuted for that. it's unbelievable. then they're curious why they go right back out and reoffend. it is simply ridiculous. will: that is unreal. jedediah: mark if we look at some of the stats on this, for example, we have a full screen, riots and arrests in portland alone, 18 riots have been declared since may 29th. 500 arrests made since may 29th. i'm a firm believer, troublemakers around the country are watching, they are noticing you can get away with this kind of mayhem and this kind of violence for 80 plus days in some of these democrat-run cities, no one will stop you. is that the message that we're sending to to people who seek to destroy? >> that is a message being sent in portland. we've seen it. 90 days. if you don't go in there and stop this, this is what you're going to see. it is getting worse. now you have groups on the other side are coming. now they're clashing with each other. it is just a matter of time
4:49 am
where someone is going to die if this is not stopped. and then switch real quick to other areas like kansas city and chicago where we're seeing other types of general violence. since july, we put, this president put 1000 federal law enforcement officers and agents there. since july, 1000 arrests, state, local, federal charges. over 90 arrests for homicides. that's how you get it done. will: it is escalating, commissioner. we appreciate your time. that is why i asked how does it end? unfortunately what might happen, a massive act of violence, pete, before somebody takes action to end this. pete: why do police have more incentive to get aggressive when they're the ones prosecuted? mark morgan, thank you for your time. appreciate it. >> you bet. pete: labor market is growing but millions are still without a job. fox business cheryl casone breaks down the top opportunities state by state

4:54 am
associate. that is pretty common across most of the country but in particular with florida, they're seeing a lot of these big box retailers, whether it is walmarts, targets, home depots, all the home improvement shows that everybody likes to watch, you're going to those stores. hiring particular at those companies. but also registered nurses are high demand in florida. that is makes sense because of the retirement population. even before the pandemic began there was a nursing shortage in this country. there is always, always a need for skilled nursing. jedediah: what about in washington? reporter: washington state, this is interesting, technology. which is not a big surprise obviously. we're all working from home and technology is becoming a bigger part of everyone's life if you will but software development engineer, there is 1245 current openings in washington state. that is the most common. again sales associates are also needed in the state of washington. jedediah: what about in kentucky? reporter: kentucky is interesting as well.
4:55 am
seeing a theme, sales associate. we'll go with that one, again. the second most common job opening is customer service representative. i always get asked a lot about work from home opportunities. i think even before this, people really enjoyed the idea working from home. a lot of customer service jobs, in particular in that state are work from home opportunities. that could be nice, unless you're working at home for six months, now you want to get out of the house. you may be that person too. jedediah: shifting over to nebraska now? reporter: nebraska is interesting. a lot of open road in nebraska. it's a beautiful state if you've been there, diesel mechanic, there are 364 jobs open for diesel mechanics. they have another need for sales associates in nebraska. jedediah: finally we have the great state of texas. reporter: my state, my home. texas has, they also need sales associates, that is number one. number two, there is the theme,
4:56 am
registered nurse. i want to say, two hottest, really places to work, types of jobs, talking to you college grads right now, nursing and technology is. that is really where the hiring is happening f you're young, thinking about what to do with your life, those are two of the best sectors to look at. we have more than 10% unemployed. the unemployment rate is 10.2%. it is rough out there. there are jobs. it is more competitive to get them. jedediah: cheryl casone, definitely it is rough out there but you brought us some hope today. some job openings i know people will check out. thanks so much for being here. reporter: you bet. jedediah: coming up, hogan gidley, mike huckabee, maria bartiromo, david webb, dr. marc siegel coming up. don't miss it. ♪

[laughter] he's working on his breakfast --
5:01 am
jedediah: there you go. will: and a happy pete makes for a happy show. pete: we try. will is generally birdies position a happy person. will: which, by the way, works into the theme of the republican national convention this week which hopes to strike a more positive, optimistic tone than what you might have heard last week. president trump is traveling to charlotte tomorrow, he hopes to send that positive message. here are the themes. monday, land of heroes. tuesday, it's land of promise. wednesday, land of opportunity and thursday, land of greatness. president trump on the next revolution later today on fox news, and here's what he had to say about the tone of that message. >> you just had the democrat convention, you're up next week. a lot of commentary was it was very negative. >> right. >> very much attacking -- >> it was dark. it was dark. >> right. >> i agree. >> what are we going to see from
5:02 am
your party next week? >> well, i think we're going to see something that is going to be very uplifting and positive. that's what i'd like it tonight. i think you have to defend yourself by talking about some of the lies like when he says social security. i don't think he knows too much about social security. will: you know, pete, jed, when it comes to the republican national convention, i want to tell you there are three things that i want to hear from the republicans this week. one is something that donald trump's been very good at, speaking to the middle class, talking about trade with china, ways to buy but their -- buoy their -- and number three, pete, this is where optimism comes n. i want to hear the american story. as we're seeing might be the theme, i want to hear how our values are not our problems in this country but our deliverance from our problems. pete: certainly, will, it's a
5:03 am
contrast. the forgotten men and women on the working class side that president trump suddenly, he unleashed this idea that we should remember about those people again. our policies should be oriented for putting citizens and americans first. and i think it'll be very important for the president to remind americans about what this country was like before the china virus, before china unleashed that on our country, what tax cuts and deregulation did. remember, joe biden wants to raise your taxes. what unleashing the energy potential in this country did for energy independence and the jobs in this country. securing our borders, supporting law enforcement. a lot of it the democrats have tried to muddy into what's happened ever since with job losses in our economy because of reaction to the virus. playing the tapes back a little bit, remembering them and saying, hey, joe biden may want to say build back better, but he had 50 years to build something,
5:04 am
never built it in the first place, has made understand the of promises over his career -- tons of promises over his career and never kept them. so it will be a story in contrast and values, i think, will, that last point is the most important one. we have a different set of values. we believe america is a good place, a place of capitalism and equality and opportunity not defined by its sins. it is 1776, jed, not 1690. jedediah: that's exactly right. these are challenging times. these harmly virtual -- largely virtual conventions as well. be curious to see how the rnc handles it. i think people need an influx of hope and positive energy and a reminder of how to get the country back on track. people have been through a lot between covid-19 and the shutdown, you turn on your television, and you're seeing rioting happening throughout the country. people know it's been a struggle
5:05 am
to get their bills paid, to see how everyone's going to come out of this on top, and this is a country that has a long history of facing obstacles and being resilient and coming out of these challenges bigger and stronger and better. so i think that is a chance for republicans to really contrast themselves with the dnc and say it's not all doom and gloom, this is what's ahead. let's look forward to what we can do together as a nation, and these people watching that are feeling good about themselves and their life lives and potential. you don't want to turn off a convention and feel worse. every time i tuned in to the dnc, i felt like i needed a pick me up. i had to hop on my spin bike to get an adrenaline rush. you should feel good and positive, and that's what the republicans should absolutely bring to the table both in terms of tone and policy. there's another big story that we're covering right now. it's a dark one because it's breaking overnight. anti-police rioters have continued clashing with officers
5:06 am
in denver. rioters smashing windows, setting fires in the street, throwing rocks and fireworks at officers outside police headquarters. [background sounds] [bleep] jedediah: agitators tried tearing down a fence at the state capitol building. nine people arrested, at least one officer hurt, and a sum scene in -- a a similar scene in portland. >> i thought that's what they were down there trying to fight, was this kind of behavior towards them, but they're exhibiting the same behavior that they're trying to stop. jedediah: police arrested a suspect in the attack. he is charged with assault and rioting. so this is an unfortunate reality that we're seeing now that has unfolded in city after city. we covered it in seattle,
5:07 am
portland, denver, new york city is an absolute disaster. when you see rioting, destruction, people are just destroying for the sake of it it because they're getting away with it. and you see many democrat-run citieses being overrun, set aflame, and that leadership -- so-called leadership in those cities doing absolutely nothing about it to contain it or to send a message to other cities this will not be tolerated. will: you bring up the operable word, leadership. there is no doubt that the united states of america today is dealing with some very dark issues from covid to riots, to division at every level. and we're looking at increasing violation on the streets in places like portland. but leadership is what is needed to deliver us from this darknd right now. mark morgan is calling on local leadership to do their job in portland, to deliver the citizens there from this
5:08 am
increasing violence. >> what we need is what we've been saying for a long time, is for the local leadership to step up, do their job and let the law enforcement officers in that area do what they know needs to be done to stop this lawlessness. we've seen now almost 90 days complete ineptness of local leadership. if you don't go in there and stop this, this is what you're going to see, and it's getting worse. now you have groups on the other side, now they're clashing with each other. i mean, it's just a matter of time where someone's going to die if this is not stopped. will: and that's my concern, pete. without leadership, it might take some tragic, massive violent act to wake everyone up to put an end to this increasing violence. pete: you're right. and joe bidens has said nothing. they don't even acknowledge that it exists. we've had democrats say what are
5:09 am
you talking about? these are peaceful protests. or take it if my former home state of minnesota, small town, black lives matter outside the head of the police union in minneapolis. they're not breaking any laws by being on the street, but they're trying to intimidate this person. this is violence, this is intimidation. look at that breaking of the window. i don't know what they did to get anything going, but i don't know, what did he get? $1,000 fine, defacing property? do you get jail time? how about assaulting a police officer? how about throwing a bottle? the fact that they're not using the tools at their disposal allows this to continue to spin out of control. it's i why the president talks about law and order. the political leaders who yell about defund the police, they've got their own security. i don't. and, joe biden, you want to take away my second amendment right as well where i can't defend myself? will: but it's not limited to
5:10 am
local leadership, and it's not limited to joe biden. this is also a vacuum in leadership that the president, quite honestly, needs to step into. and that's what i would hope to hear this coming week, how will you help deliver cities like portland, chicago, seattle, new york, from this spiral. pete: what's amazing is when he sends the national guard, you're hurting the environment. it's almost like if trump says he'll help, they have to be against it even if it will. to your point, we'll hear about it this week. jedediah: think about, pete, too why the dnc didn't bring any of this up. it's like they were afraid to upset the rioters. there's something wrong with an equation where you have an entire convention take place, cities quite literally up in names and they're silent on the issue. what is going on with their base? what's wrong with them that you can't simply acknowledge that peaceful protests are okay, but what you see going on just look like massive destruction of property, people are getting
5:11 am
injured, people have died. i mean, it's really crazy when that moral barometer has shifted to a point where it's unrecognizable. will: very true. president trump leaving just moments ago as lawmakers battle over the postal service, so is now the democrats are using mail drop boxes which are a voter security or disaster among other things that make it possible for a potential to vote -- person to vote multiple times. also who controls them? are they not covid sanitized? a big fraud. it comes after the house passed a $25 billion funding bill, also bans operational changes that has slod down mail service. the bill will not pass the senate. joe biden hit with yet another plagiarism claim over his dnc acceptance speech. >> love is more powerful than hate, hope is more powerful than
5:12 am
fear and light is more powerful than dark. will wl biden's sounding similar to this line: my friends, love is better than ang or, hope is better than fear, optimism is better than despair. you will recall biden withdrew from the democratic party's presidential race when he nurse ran 30 years ago after he reportedly took lines from a u.k. labour party leader during a debate. now to extreme weather. the gulf coast bracing for impact from tropical storms laura and marco. the two could hit the u.s. within 24 hours of each other. it hasn't happened since 1933. laura hitting puerto rico with winds up to 70 miles per hour. president trump issuing an emergency declaration for the island. marco hitting mexico with strong
5:13 am
winds, expected to make landfall in louisiana. and and, you know, jed, you should read this headline. i i feel like you would love it more than me. jedediah: a very special addition to one zoo. an eastern black rye not russ was born, a critically endangered species. it's a second one born at the zoo. both mom and baby are doing well. no names have been announced, but we'll be waiting on that. and i, of course, would like a baby rhino -- pete, how could you not want to read that headline? pete: that's two days in a row you've wanted to adopt an animal that would completely maul you. will: what does that mean, an eastern bloc rhino? pete: there's borders and citizenship for animals. i didn't know that. apparently. will: a major breakthrough in the fight against covid-19, what

5:18 am
>> jedediah, good morning. you have to understand the virus doesn't know that an election is coming up, and so a virus can't be involved in the politics here. and the president has said, you know, that he's concerned about the fda being a little bit too political right now. and one of the things that happened a couple of days ago was that the, fda delayed an emergency use authorization on convalescent plasma, that's the antibodies you get when you're getting over covid-19. and the fact is that those type of antibodies have been used for over a hundred years successfully for other diseases, and a study out of houston methodist in 300 patients just showed a dramatic impact at keeping people alive longer. so there's those antibodies that could be on the table that people recovering have, synthetic antibodies are being studied, we have a steroid spray that a may help early in the process and stem cells for
5:19 am
people who have prolonged symptoms that are getting over covid-19. all of those things are currently being studied aggressively. but it was eyebrow-raising that the fda did not issue an emergency use authorization on the antibodies, and i don't know for sure that that's what the president is going to discuss, but it's on the table. jedediah: yeah. obviously any fda delays i would potentially be problematic. we'll hear from the president today at 6 p.m. and find out more. another topic that you have talked about quite a bit and you have a recent op-ed of which the headline reads, classical damage of closed schools worse than the risk of the virus. but this is a lot of fear right now around opening schools. parents are nervous, teachers are nervous. what's your take on it all? >> you know, jed, we're also burying the headline of good news, and the good news that occurred was 660 daycare centers
5:20 am
were just tested in rhode island very carefully over the month of june where the rate of covid-19 spread was very low. and you know what the cdc found? they found almost no cases in 19,000 children that went to daycare centers. only 4 cases have spread. that's right, 4 out of 19,000. and dr. redfield's been talking about this of cdc and saying, you know, if protocols are in place and there's physical distancing and people are taking really a lot of caution and care, he thinks that schools can be opened in areas which are not big with hot spots, where the rate of transmission is low. my own son's school, horstmanen -- horace mann, by the way, is opening with the tents outside, and they have to meet their teachers and the teachers have to meet them to know what's going on. you cannot start the year online and socialize properly. jedediah: thinking outside the box and tents outside is a great
5:21 am
idea. this will be an ongoing conversation. thank you, dr. siegel, as i always. >> jedediah, thank you. have a great day. jedediah: you too. coming up, we have been telling you about how the tunnel 2 towers foundation, ceo frank siller joins us live with a new update this morning. that's next. welcome, today's discussion will be around sliced meat. moms want healthy... and affordable. land o' frost premium!!! no added hormones either. it's the only protein i've really melted with. land o' frost premium. fresh look. same great taste.

canceled, you said you'd do it. then they put it back on, so you're doing it at the pentagon, i believe, and at shanksville. you canceled the reading of the names? you will be reading those names. >> yes. honored to take on that responsibility. you know, the 9/11 memorial and museum, their one job to make sure that they take care of 9/11 families, to make sure they're never forgotten and to honor those who perished 19 years ago, and they dropped the ball. we're proud that we are going to read the names out loud, in person on september 11th this year, and we're going to do it in a safe way. you know, they said they couldn't do it in a safe away. we know that's bogus because they reversed the tribute in lights, they reversed that decision after i came on here with you last weekend and said that we were doing it. but the great news is that we are going to shine a big, beautiful light, a big beautiful
5:27 am
blue light at shanksville and around the pentagon to make sure that the lives that were lost 19 years ago will be remembered in those locations, because it's very important. you know, we can never minimize that day, pete, and they were minimizing it, and we're not going to. we're going to make sure that they're paid the correct homage. pete: are you getting support for the reading of the names, frank? of course it can be done safely, of course the 9/11 memorial should have done it. you pointed it out, you've got one job, just do it. they're playing a recording, instead, from previous years. are you going to -- where will it be exactly, and is the city playing nice? hopefully they'll cover it. >> yes, it will be coveredded, and to be -- it'll be at liberty church just where we used the read the names prior to when the memorial was being finished, so it will be right up there.
5:28 am
and, you know, we're going to make sure it's done in a safe way. it's so easily done, you just have the readers come up to separate podiums one at a time, and you clean them in between, and they have their masks on until they read the names. it's just so easily done. so we know it wasn't the reason, and you know it wasn't the reason they weren't doing the tribute in life, because they reversed course in two days because all of a sudden they found a saw safe way of doing it. shame on them. pete: well, steven siller could have played it safe on that day, and he didn't. all those men and women who ran up the stairs when everyone else was running down and we can't find a way to read the names. i hope to be there, frank. we appreciate it. keep it up. >> i hope you're there too. god bless. pete: god bless. all right, coming up, the householding a rare saturday session all in an attempt to, they say, protect the post office. but our next guest wants the know why didn't they treat helping out of work americans with the same urgency? the governor, mike huckabee, on

5:34 am
needed conversation for quite some time. is it a hoax? is it a con fliewngs of events? let's ask fox news contributor, governor mike huckabee. good morning. >> good morning, all of you. this is such a, just a totally ridiculous story. i mean, you would think that after all of the russia, russia, russia stuff we'd finally learn are don't believe what the democrats are worried about because it's a diversionary tactic. but here they are now nancy is pelosi didn't want to deal with infrastructure, doesn't want to deal with daca and most importantly, did not want to deal with making sure that americans who are out of work could get a check and somehow survive. no. they rushed to d.c. like a 911 is fire alarm and voted on a saturday so they can save an empty mailbox. this is kabooky theater because all the theaters in america is have closed, and it really is, i think, straining the credibility
5:35 am
of what is left of congress. and i hope that americans are smarter and will see through this nonsense. jedediah: governor, we're now at the point in politics where the game of predictions has started, and newt gingrich has come out and made a pretty dramatic prediction saying that a dramatically bigger than expected trump win will happen particularly after the dnc when you saw that the democrats refused to denounce the violence and the rioting that's going on around the country. let's take a listen to newt gingrich, and then we'll get your reaction. >> so you're not predicting a landslide trump victory -- >> i'm pricking it'll be a dramatically bigger victory than people current arely expect. you see it beginning to build now. >> you do? >> there's a poll in minnesota that shows him tied with biden -- >> yep. >> we don't have to make stuff up. we don't have to invent some post office phony scandal, we just have to tell the truth about how radical these e people
5:36 am
are, rioting every day for 90 days. that begins to be a fact. and it was very interesting to me that neither biden nor harris was willing to say a word about antifa, a word about a level of crime. jedediah: do you agree with newt's prediction on a trump victory? >> 100%. and it does look a lot like 2016 except i think it's going to be more subtle, but it's going to be more dramatic. and i say that because in 2016 all the people who lived in the bubbles of d.c., new york, silicon valley and hollywood just never saw this coming. but if you had gone out to waffle houses and places, you know, in the rural south and across the midwest, what you would have heard was a very deferent story. and one thing -- different story. and normally when a party has a convention, they get a nice little bump in the polls. this time there was a bump in the polls after the dnc, but it was a bump for trump. and as a result, donald trump's
5:37 am
numbers went up, not joe biden's. that's very significant. and the enthusiasm gap. i don't know of many people who are really gung ho for joe. they just don't like donald trump, and we get that. but when i it gets down to voting, people are going to have to ask themselves do i want higher taxes, do i want a green new deal that triples my energy bill? do i really want open borders and riots and looting that are defended by public officials who won't do a doggone thing to stop it except if it's on their own block like in chicago? people start asking those hard questions, and i honestly don't think a lot of them will have of a choice except for the ones who just cannot stand donald trump and wouldn't vote for him no matter what, and then there are the people who are going to vote for him no matter what. but there are a lot of americans who are going to vote for their country, their children, their futures, their neighborhoods, their safety, security and pocketbooks. pete: a little birdie tells me you're turning 65 tomorrow, it's
5:38 am
your birthday -- >> yeah. pete: happy birthday. when you blow out -- that's a lot of candles. when you close your eyes and make a wish, what does governor huckabee wish for? >> gee. i just wish that my candles don't create another california wildfire like those that are going on out there, because those are serious enough. but i do want you to know, be prepared because tomorrow the banks, the post offices, all government buildings will be closed in honor of my 65th birthday because i'm going on medicare tomorrow.

5:46 am
adjectives have been so important as to who we are, who is voting. is this a mistake by democrats, the lean so heavily into, quote-unquote, white moderates and that form of criticism, of defining us by our adjectives? >> well, will, isn't amazing whenever we talk about the amazing, it's not new, it's their history. it's always about some definition, be it your color of your skin, your age, your gender, whatever the case may be. and if you think about it, this is what they do have to do as a party because they've lost those centrist americans, those moderates, those independents. they've gone heavily radical when you look at a bernie sanders who says my ideas that were once considered radical are now mainstream in the party. so bernie sanders and ark oc and the -- aoc and the rest to have squad and others are leading the new radical left. they're just a lot more open about it, a lot more honest

5:48 am

6:02 am
obviously tune into the fox news channel for the latest on that but what we're starting with this hour is the house, which held a rare saturday session to pass a $25 billion usps funding bill. now president trump weighed in earlier via tweet on this and said the following. so now the democrats are using mail drop boxes which are a voter security disaster among other things they make it possible for a person to vote multiple times, also who controls them? are they placed in republican or democrat areas? they are not covid-sanitized. a big fraud so obviously, the post office has become an issue of controversy not many of us saw that coming the post office had financial trouble in the past, some trouble with reform in the past. its just become a hot button election issue because nancy pelosi decided that she wanted to make it one. she wanted to blame president trump for compromising the election somehow that is why i believe she held that vote which is utterly ridiculous it's
6:03 am
dead on arrival in the senate the president already threatened to veto but this is politics as usual i hope the public will recognize . it's not having anything to do with the post office but being all about the election politics. will: this story has become increasingly convoluted. it's starting to resemble the russia collusion story that drove the news cycle for years, quite honestly. pete i've tried to look through this at every single occasion. here seem to be the facts of the matter when it comes to usps there's plenty of money to get them through this election cycle and plenty of capacity, the number of parcels updrafts is handling is down from years past, they are used to handling big bulk mail coming at one-time i introduce you to christmas, however they do have to pay attention, republicans do have to pay attention to appearances and the postmaster general has shown and said it's true we will put off any streamlining until after the election. to avoid any appearance of in propriety. we talked and i asked, congressman doug collins about that a little bit earlier, here was his response.
6:04 am
>> the reality to many people and the perception being generated by the democrats were is that there was this massive collusion among the post master general and others to throw the election. that's the person as we're coming into this is theres nothing being taken off line. go deeper here. they are talking about taking sorting machines off line, closing, taking mailboxes and moving them. some of the pictures that were used about mailboxes being taken off line were from years ago, and they were reusing them to show that something was happening now. i believe that we need to take the fear out of it but they are using the postal service just like the russia impeachment to get at this president. pete: ultimately will you talk about the facts that came out of a very real concern that if you push mail ballots out in the mail to people as opposed to them requesting them you could have problems. if you don't know what the chain of custody is of that mail, you could have problems. if mail is delivered late and counted later in swing states, you don't have an election decision right away but you talk about the facts. i think i cracked the code
6:05 am
earlier on the postal service. see here is what it is. russia infiltrated the u.s. postal service via the dnc server in hillary's home and it never made it to ukraine and it's all steve bannon and carter page's fault. at the end of the day, you weave it altogether and it really make sense, jed. jedediah: i thought it was your fault, pete. pete: oh, well that too, throw that in there. jedediah: we have a big news day happening today, president trump like i said is set to kickoff a busy week by announcing a major therapeutic breakthrough against covid-19 at the white house later today i believe at 6:00 p.m. just one day before the president heads to charlotte for the start of the republican convention, lucas tomlinson joins us live from washington with new reaction from joe biden this morning lucas what do you have? >> that's right, gong an unprecedented move, president trump plans to speak on all four
6:06 am
nights of the gop convention and as you know joe biden spoke to abc about his fitness for office. >> watch me. mr. president, watch me. look at us both, what we say, what we do, what we control, what we know, what kind o of shape we're in, come on. look. i think that it's a legitimate question to ask anybody over 70 years old whether or not they're fit and whether they're ready. >> reporter: president trump also spoke to our own steve hilton ahead of the gop convention. >> the commentary on the democratic convention is it was very negative, right? very much. president trump: it was dark. i agree. >> what are we going to see from your party next week? president trump: well i think we'll see something very uplift ing and positive. that's what i'd like it to be. >> reporter: and as you mentioned president trump's press sec says the president has a major announcement on a coronavirus breakthrough tonight at 6:00 p.m. we'll be watching that this
6:07 am
evening as well as all of his primetime addresses at the gop convention, guys. will: thank you, lucas i hope that positive it coming from the republican national convention not just focuses on our current status in america meaning coronavirus racial division, riots but also as we talked about throughout the morning, our founding values , those that i believe will deliver us from our trouble s, are not at the core of the indictment of our troubles. pete: great point. and the other debate we're having and you see it in contrast between a virtual convention in milwaukee, where no one went to milwaukee including the nominee himself and a physical convention where the president will be there or closing and opening or giving people choice versus national mask mandates. you're seeing it here in new york city. mayor deblasio, it's hard to even, you know, what's the other word for it, his owner? it's a nickname. there's nicknames for mayors. he was asked about because right now dining is not open in new
6:08 am
york city even though it's open in long island, even though it's open elsewhere, here is what he said about his plan for indoor dining. >> indoor dining is not a plan right now. there's not a context for indoor dining. we're never saying it's impossible but we do not based on what we seen around the world , we do not have a plan for reopening indoor dining in the near term. jedediah: yeah so that's unbelievable and that's typical deblasio if you live in new york and we've been under his leadership for a long time this is him on every important issue of the day and you have restaurant owners in new york city losing their minds they lost a ton of money with winter coming outdoor dining just isn't enough to sustain their businesses as many have already lost businesses. earlier in the show i spoke with a staten island restaurant owner and he talked about how this is destroying not only his restaurants and the others that he owns but the industry at large. take a listen to what he had to say. >> that is probably the worst
6:09 am
thing a mayor can say. once the administration and deblasio and cuomo stating what they said thinking of not reopening us and might even just shut us down again, it will defer as tate us. we're not going to survive the year for sure. if that happens, very few of us will be able to survive that. we barely survive march, april, and may and now we're surviving because of the outdoor, and that's how we come up with the only resort will be some sort of get altogether and ban as many restaurants together as possible. will: shutdowns are not going to be something that delivers the american public from what it finds itself in today, unfortunately joe biden has begun to echo that sentiment when enacted here in new york city by mayor deblasio but not limited new york city. also new jersey as well and earlier pete spoke to gym owners the atilis gym in new jersey who partnered up with republican senate candidate to avoid the shutdowns imposed there in new jersey.

listen to this. >> when we started this , we took a stand for our constitutional rights, and for the rights of all small business owners throughout the country, and it wasn't intended to become political. it turned political, and that was because of governor murphy's actions, so now we made it political just as much as he has >> i stand here with ian and frank, because for me it was time to put policy over politics i'm really tired of this one- sided control that the governor has. we flattened the curve and they keep moving the goal post. governor murphy turned this into a political chess game and so what we said is checkmate governor. pete: it's right, atilis gym is a head quarters for the senate campaign and saying if you shut it down you're shutting down a campaign headquarters upping the ante yet again guys they pointed out they've had 25,000 customers come to that gym, not a single covid case because they followed proper guidelines in doing so. they just want the same respect that other businesses are

6:18 am
the president trump for another four years. a lot of people don't realize that biden, the obama-biden administration introduced restorative justice programs into the public schools which led and was pioneered in broward county which led to my daughter getting murdered, and president trump rescinded them with his, in his school safety commission, and that meant the world to me. rescinding those policies, and if biden gets elected in his unity platform, he's promising to force them into the public schools again. pete: break that down a little bit. what is that restorative justice policy? for instance in broward county, students were allowed three to four misdemeanors per school year, without ever getting introduced to law enforcement, so they could assault a teacher, another student, rob an iphone, steal drug, and they would put them in a so-called healing circle and they thought that be , that would benefit students , which it really does
6:19 am
the opposite. it sets them up for failure and it lets them slip through the cracks and that's what happened in parkland and if biden gets elected, he wants to introduce those policies throughout the public school system in the country. also, pete, democrats want to remove police officers from public schools, which is ludacris to me. under president trump, that won't happen, and i'm always here to support law enforcement when they need us most and that's right now. pete: well they've also democrat s have also vowed since that shooting and others to takeaway the right to bear arms of law-abiding citizens in this country as well. what's your stance on that, specifically as it pertains to schools and to school safety? >> sure, the second amendment means more to me now than it ever has. my daughter was in that school, hundreds of calls to 911, and no one came into save my daughter that day, pete and she was shot
6:20 am
nine times, so for me it's more important than anything to be able to defend my family and my friends if something ever happened. it's very important that teacher s or police officers are there to defend our students if something like that happens and through my school safety grant, i want to help any law enforcement agency out there. all they have to do is go on to where we'll give them the tools to respond to an active shooter. so we need to support law enforcement. we need to support the president now, in these times of defunding the police, and these restorative justice programs. pete: sometimes you don't even think about how that idea of de funding the police is going all the way into the classroom, which changes the lives of young people, andrew, thank you so much for your courage, for being so articulate and for really continuing a memory of your daughter meadow who we remember today thank you so much. >> thanks, pete.

proposed changes to the post office which he suspended last week, after public perception and backlash. then on wednesday, united launch alliance is scheduled to launch its rocket from cape canaveral. it will bring a school bus-size spy satellite into orbit gland we're telling everybody about our spy satellite. >> [laughter] pete: strikes me as odd, but it's the eighth time the rocket has been used for this kind of mission. and finally on thursday, president trump will give his rnc acceptance speech from the white house south lawn. he will be the first president to accept his nomination at the white house, since fdr in 1940. jed, will, over to you. jedediah: thanks, pete. texas governor greg abbott warning against the city of austin's move to slash police funding by $150 million. >> when crime is on the rise, the last thing that we should do
6:26 am
is to defund law enforcement, and yet that is exactly what the city of austin did. will: now that's a stark contrast from houston, texas, where the city council's voted to boost the police budget by $20 million and houston police chief art acevido is urging officers from defunded police departments to come to houston and he joins us now. chief this is an interesting tactic it's a zig to everyone else's stag it's innovating by cities like austin are cutting budgets. you're seeing opportunities to hire new officers? >> we're fortunate we have a mayor and a council and this big metropolitan called houston that understands our community don't want less policing or don't want to defund the police and want better policing and good cops so absolutely when you see it's challenging to actually go out and get folks to join the policing ranks today if good officers want to come here and serve this great city that we're
6:27 am
hiring, we have 400 positions thanks to our mayor and council and we looking forward to finding good people. jedediah: chief so how does that work in terms of getting into the program and getting certified to serving houston for these cops that have been in these horrifically defunded police departments around the country? >> yeah, for a lateral class we're putting together two lateral classes and if you have three years of honorable service with a good service record and you want to come here and sit in a six-month academy, it's a 10- week academy and then put them in field training and make sure that they subscribe to the values of our city and our department and we put them to serve. i've done this before in austin, i've done it once here in houston. houston is i think one of the cities that we're hopeful that we'll get good folks to come help us serve here in this big place. will: now chief while the defund the police movement or in extreme cases the abolish the police movement is clearly the wrong path forward, there
6:28 am
are many in the citizens and with law enforcement that don't just want more officers but better officers. how do you ensure you're not just hiring more but better officers with accelerated training? >> well you know, the hiring process is critical, the training process is critical and also the policies and procedures and the training in our departments are critical. i love police officers. i've been one for 34 years but i can be tough on them and you'll see out there in social media, they will tell you this is a chief that if you're going to come here to do the right thing, follow the training that's provided and actually treat people the way you'd want to treat your own family be treated by the police, then you're coming to the right place but if you want to be one of the i call them the bushels of apples of bad cops because there's more than just a few bad cops don't come to houston because our community and our officers, you know, typically homegrown department, so it's a matter of doing everything you can to have the right people in place, the right leadership in place
6:29 am
and the right policies and right training in place and ultimately the right relationship with the community that you serve. jedediah: well chief i think you're doing an incredible job at a time when police officers have been disrespected so much around this nation fantastic and good on you for inviting them to come to houston to do the job to serve the great state of texas thanks for being here we appreciate it. will: thanks, chief. thank you have a great day. jedediah: you too. the spotlight is on republicans this week, as a party gears up for the rnc so how is the gop planning to upstage democrats? we're going to ask trump 2020 campaign national press secretary hogan gidley, don't miss it next. >> ♪ us a song you're the piano man, sing us a song tonight, well we're all in the mood for a melody, you've got us feeling all right ♪ ♪ it's velveeta shells & cheese

6:34 am
ed let's bring in hogan gidley national press sec for the trump 2020 campaign a very busy man right now, hogan, you know, give us a sense, now there's some reports a couple of apprentice producers might be involved, we can always expect the unexpected when it comes to the disruptor in chief, president trump. he does think things his own way what are some wrinkles or things that will look different than the dnc? >> well first of all the overall theme is going to be a whole lot different. the democrats we saw for the last several days have been talking about how horrible america is, that we are inherent ly evil and the cause of the world's problems, and that's just not the way we see america. it's the greatest idea ever realized and the president is going to talk about how this is the land of opportunity, the land of heros and promise and greatness. i'm down here in georgia and i spoke to a group yesterday in savannah and it was a very diverse crowd with a lot of african americans in the back stand up and tell me how do we
6:35 am
fight back on this notion that somehow this country is horrible they said this is the greatest idea on the history, in the history of the world and we want to support not just this president, but we want the message to get out that we appreciate all of the opportunities that this country affords us that we could not get anywhere else that's what you'll see from our convention because there are a lot of people across this country whose lives have been made better because of this president's poll policies because of what america is, and how she is the land of, you know , of hope. it's the beacon of compassion, of strength across this planet and we'll share that are the american people. jedediah: hogan, president trump is to speak today at if 6:00 p.m. today about a breakthrough when it comes to covid-19 and tackling the virus and how it has swept the nation. there has been differences in strategy in terms of the way the president trump and biden
6:36 am
camp have approached it and let's do a refresher on joe biden sat down with respect to a second shutdown he sat down with abc news and he has thoughts and i want to reiterate that and get your reaction. >> if you're sworn in come january and we have coronavirus and the flu combining which many scientists said is a real possibility would you be prepared to shut this country down again? >> i would shut it down and listen to the scientists. i be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving until we control the virus. that is the fundamental flaw of this administration is thinking to begin with. in order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing and people employed, you have to fix the virus. you have to deal with the virus. jedediah: so he's saying he would shut it down. your reaction? >> that's incredible. he's blaming donald trump for
6:37 am
the woes we see in the economy instead of blaming china can which is where the blame should be placed. they lied about this unprecedented pandemic that swept across the globe and blaming the president for the economy which is absolutely ridiculous. when he knows it's the virus that caused the heartache that we're experiencing now the job numbers but as we begin to rebuild, his response is let's shut it all back down again which would send everyone back into a tailspin and crush the american economy. we saw the last three months more job growth than we've ever seen in the history of this country, and joe biden is talking about shutting the economy back down if he were elected not to mention the fact he had a $4 trillion tax increase on all of those hard working americans? we don't see it that way. this president has listened to the scientists from day one, when he was talking about shutting down flights from china , and from europe, people like joe biden said it was wrong and now we know from all the doctors and experts they
6:38 am
said that move itself saved countless lives, so joe biden just has no credibility on this whatsoever. will: our economic troubles have been caused by a shutdown it seems odd to double down on more shutdowns if needed but hogan you've been involved in campaign s. i would expect this idea of shutdown wouldn't be popular but also that national mask mandates wouldn't be popular but polling suggests americans are open to that kind of idea. so are americans open, you think , to shutdown as well? >> well, look. i think the mask issue has been interesting from day one but to try and say there's a national mask mandate that's just unconstitutional. by the way it should be noted he made that declaration with kamala harris and they weren't wearing masks that's ironic to say the least but he knows there are already 36 states who have mandates in their localities and that's how this thing should be handled at the state level. the federal government has been there to supply billions and billions of pieces of ppe
6:39 am
whether it be gallons or masks or gloves, ventilators as well and we've done a good job getting that, not just ppe but also billions of dollars into the states to try and help them combat this virus but those decisions about masks for example, it's so ridiculous to hear the media try and say they were on borderly with this mask dayton wearing situation. the president himself was talking about wearing masks on march 31. we issued the guidelines on april 3 with the cdc. it was a month and five days later before all the press were actually wearing masks inside the briefing room, but the way they would tell it, it's like they were sipping champaign on new years eve with n-95 mask. they weren't. this president's bold leadership will get us through this virus and out the back side with an incredible humming economy like he built it once, he'll do it again. jedediah: hogan gidley, thank you so much for joining us on this sunday morning as we head into a big week with the rnc. appreciate your insight as always.
6:40 am
thanks so much. jedediah: we'll head over to rick reichmuth who is tracking tropical storms laura and marco. rick what's the latest? rick: well let me just tell you real quickly where we are in hurricane season. you get an idea here is where we are today the bulk of hurricane season still to come and we're already on our 13th named storm this breaks every kind of record for the activity that we're see ing and we expect to see that continue. all the water temperature, anywhere across the gulf of mexico, and across the atlantic basin is above average in its temperatures, it's just one of the reasons why they are seeing such activity but this is marco, that is laura and they are coming from different directions so they won't impact each other as far as strengthening of the storm which is not good news what will happen is we're talking about two different storms about a day and a half to two days apart, likely impacting very close to the exact same area. the first one is marco comes onshore some time late tomorrow morning mid-morning through early afternoon likely around
6:41 am
eastern areas of louisiana, maybe possibly over towards parts of mississippi and the second one is laura, and as of now, its forecast to be a category 2 storm, just a little bit up towards the west of that. now these are not exactly where these storms will be. there's a lot of uncertainty in this forecast because it's the two storms that we'll have some sort of interaction at least the wind flow around them with each other, and there are some indications that the second storm could be stronger than this and some models showing a major hurricane so we have very little time to prep for this and if there are bigger impacts from the first storm across louisiana , two days later a second storm you're just trying to get your bearings and clean-up is going to be a big problem. east texas, don't want to make you think this isn't possible for you as well, so east texas, somewhere through louisiana, but at this point it looks like louisiana is our best guess at this point anybody in that entire area, needs to be taken this seriously and watching closely. guys? pete: absolutely. rick, thank you very much. president trump now raising the possibility of decoupling

height and the number the president said will continue to go down. jed? jedediah: all right, we're going to shift over to another topic, because coming up today on "sunday morning futures", senator lindsey graham and house minority leader kevin mccarthy and there's one topic we can surely expect, china and the threat it poses to the united states as president trump raises the possibility of de coupling. president trump: you're asking a second question would you ever just decouple, not do business with china, because you know we don't have to. it's something that if they don't treat us right i would certainly think. i would certainly think. we would never hear that from joe biden. will: here to discuss "sunday morning futures" host maria bartiromo. good morning, maria what's your reaction to what you just heard from the president? maria: hey there, guys good morning to you. the president had said this to me as well, he is no bones about it. if china and the communist party continues to behave the way they do, you know, invading others
6:47 am
territory like india, like those islands near japan, the south china sea, like hong kong, then yes, the president could in fact limit the partnership between the two countries. now it's unlikely that we will have a clean break and that the u.s. and china would not be doing some business, because these are the two largest economies, so an absolute de coupling is likely, you know, not in the cards; however the president has said things like that to me as well. he's done with xi-jinping right now. he doesn't want to talk with him or have any relationship because of the way they handled the coronavirus. so not surprised there, and i could tell you this. there's going to be a completely different relationship with china if biden is the president because biden does not have the same issues that the president has. he just has not seen him as the threat they have been. pete: well he's part of the old establishment foreign policy consensus that a peaceful rise of china and trade with them is automatically a good thing which is proven to be completely false
6:48 am
you've done more work on this really anybody you did a great documentary on fox nation about the chinese, economically could we decouple and who be the winner of that decoupling maria: well look these are the two largest economies and it's very difficult to think that we're going to have a complete decoupling because look , the u.s. gets cheap product, because of china, so americans have enjoyed the luxury of having to pay, you know, dirt cheap for certain products that are made in china, so if there was a decoupling it would mean products be more expensive in the u.s. , but the president is not looking at that. he's looking at the overall national security risks and they are severe, because the chinese communist party has a massive espionage campaign and has for decades. we're going to have breaking news today from lindsey graham, he's going to unveil documents not seep before to show the difference of treatment between the trump campaign and the hillary clinton campaign

6:53 am
a convention is a chance for a city to showcase what it can offer and get people excited about the upcoming election but this time on the ground in charlotte things look very different and the only thing that you'd notice is that there is a convention is this one right here above the charlotte convention center that says " welcome" compared to what we saw four years ago on the ground in cleveland, ohio things look very different. as you can see there are no crowds, there's nobody selling t-shirts or signs or buttons certainly a different convention than anything we've seen before. the one thing that i have seen that is somewhat normal is the security barriers that have been setup directly across from the convention center. you can see these we've seen them before at high profile events that are pretty common in washington d.c., but certainly secret service as well as local police not taking any chances with the possibility of demonstrators coming out. we do expect a number of high profile republicans to be making their way here for the official nomination on monday, but then most of the events they're taking place during the weekend other locations, mostly in washington d.c., with a lot of people eager to see what will
